There was a fuss a while back over something like this. If I recall correctly, SE was blocking service accounts that were registered outside of the region they were being used. I'm not sure if you select a region when you set up your service account or if it's something that is done automatically based on which regional version of the game you have, but if I were you I'd get my info directly from the horse's mouth.
Contact SE and ask them to make sure. It's definitely a loss if you purchase a copy of the game you can't use at all.
*EDIT* Found some info

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
